grandchildren are here

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I love my granchildren dont get me wrong but,they are a handfull!!!Theres not enough of me to go around!They grow faster than my children did...or so it seems.The youngest is 4 and she does NOT want to share me at all. Im her Grammy.She is the Energizer bunny on caffeine!One minute shes laughing the next she's crying.I have 8 and i dont get to see my second daughters kids at all
long story short,she thinks i neglected her growing up and until she's ready she cant be around any of us.I guess you have to respect thier wishes at times.One day in the future she will come to understand!Finances are not always the best and her kids will grow up and be angry like her...hopefully not!In the meantime i will not keep worrying about it any longer like she hopes. happy thursday sp!hugs!

    Oh, I know what you mean. My own daughter has her issues along the same line. Apparently we were complete idiots when we raised them. emoticon Oh well, I don't worry about it. I love my grandkids but sometimes it's just not worth the headaches I have to go through to see them.
Thanks goodness you still get to spend time with some, and as you said, hopefully she will come around soon.

    You are doing the right thing not worrying about your daughter. You have to take care of you!

I was taught to hold my emotions inside and that nobody cares how we feel!I am tired of pretending everything is ok when its not!Im tired of being taken advantage of when I want to say NO!But,my mouth says yes!GRRRRR!!when I have plans to do what I want and I end up somewhere else!With someone I really want to punch!And im not the violent type!Im in the process of learning to say No!!And that people will survive when I turn them down.Nobody will stop breathing,no arms or legs will fall off and I wont feel guilty for having said NO!My emotions are a roller coaster right now,I have been letting them out or I will explode!My husband says to quit lying to myself when something or somebody is bothering me and GET MAD!What do you all think????

    This is one of the goals I'm working on this year myself. It's a process and it's scary! I'm taking it in small chunks and trying not to worry so much what other people think about me!

    I have a big mouth - and I am not the best at biting my tongue, but it is what works for me (this also makes me not the best judge of confrontation, etc.)

Try different approaches and see what works for you. The are some in-between places but only you can find the ones right for you.

You can do it! Consider it a fun experiment.

Go get 'em, gorgeous.

    I can certainly relate. I am the poster child for people-pleasing-co-dependent women. My excuse is..."All I want is peace and for people to like me." The truth is...there may be peace on the outside...but there's turmoil on the inside.

I finally had a come-to-Jesus meeting with myself and finally confronted the person I was struggling with. I found the truth about the situation and peacefully shared it. Believe it or was received in a good way and I was relieved to finally get it off my chest. The more you keep things inside...the more bent out of shape you will get.

Find your truth...then speak it with grace. Realize that's there's freedom in setting good boundaries and speaking the truth in love.

I'll keep you in my prayers.

    I learned how to say no after 40 years. People thought I had changed and not always for the best. But I am stronger and better for it. emoticon You can still be kind and loving and still say no. Your feelings do matter. emoticon

    I wish I had your restraint. I tend to say whatever is on my mind. People respond by saying "You are so refreshingly honest." But I think deep down they really just wish I'd shut my mouth. Yes, it is good to express how you really feel in a way that doesn't offend. There is a balance. You can find it!!

    I know those eyes!!! LOL My dog does that to me all winter. "What? I am supposed to go out in the cold & snow? Not thinkin' so much." And so the battle ensues. He still doesn't realize in the end I will just pick him up and carry him outside if need be! LOL

Good job on the weight loss.

    We're have the same weather. I took my dog for a walk and on the way back it started sprinkling. Well, at least I got an uphill walk in. emoticon

    Yeah!! I love your attitude.

I am trying to figure out what's in your background? It's beautiful. Is it diaphanus and cosmos. They are lovely.

Have a fab week!
